3. Quarterback

Even after signing Kirk Cousins, taking a quarterback in the first round should be considered. Cousins isn't going to play another ten years and with how his contract is structured, we could see a new starter three or four years from now.

If a quarterback slips to Atlanta then they could use their top pick for their future. Sit the prospect behind Cousins for a few years and let him develop without intense pressure.

In no way should the big free agent signing eliminate the potential of this team taking a first-round quarterback.
